Local USC freshmen receive scholarships
August 4, 2005
Paul Parrish, president of the University of Southern California-Northern Nevada Alumni Club, his family, and board members hosted the SC-endoff July 30.
Incoming freshmen students and their families were welcomed into the USC fold. The students’ GPA average was 3.9 unweighted and 4.2 weighted and the SAT scores were between 1260 to 1530. The students head for campus Aug. 17.
Scholarships of $500 from the USC-NNAC, plus a match by USC of $1,000 were awarded to Tony “T.J.” Tutay Jr. and Katie Trainor, Bishop Manogue High School; Lisa Dring, Reno High School; Nathan Tiras, Incline High School; Spencer Darrell Armuth, Wooster High School; Ryan Green, Bishop Manogue; and Hyerin Kim, McQueen High School. Margaret Boulton of Reno High School received from USC the Trustees Scholarship and Hyerin Kim of McQueen High School received the USC Presidential Scholarship.
Nathan Tiras of Incline High, who will be a trombonist in the famous USC marching band, received the first Carmen Parrish Scholarship/Endowment Award of $1,000. Carmen Parrish, a loyal USC alumna and member of the USC-NNAC, passed away last year. Her family established the award in her memory to be presented to a Northern Nevada USC student. Tiras has a sister, Meredith, who will be a junior at USC and is also a member of the band.
“USC is receiving the ‘Best in the West’ with these incoming freshmen,” said Vicki Hanes, public relations representative for the club. “Many thanks to our loyal, dedicated and hardworking USC-NNAC board, Steve and Germaine McMorris, Tim and Christy Smith, Pete and Carla Quenzer, Stan Hanes, Dave Morandi, Gene and Anne Rasmussen, Robert and Donna Goode and to President Paul Parrish for keeping the USC Trojan spirit alive, viable and recognized in Northern Nevada. Hats off to the parents, teachers and mentors for inspiring fabulous, fascinating, talented, gifted and focused young adults.”
